Safety instructions
The safety of AEG electrical appliances conforms to accepted rules of technology and
the Appliance Safety Act. We as manufacturers, however, see ourselves as being
obliged to familiarise you with the following safety instructions.
Using your dishwasher for its intended purpose
●
Only use your dishwasher for machine washing of household crockery. If your
machine is misused or used for any purposes other than that for which it is
intended, the manufacturer cannot be held liable for any damage caused.
●
For safety reasons, you should not convert or modify your dishwasher in any way.
Before using your dishwasher for the first time
●
Check your dishwasher for any transport damage. Never connect a damaged
machine. If your dishwasher is damaged, you should contact your supplier.
●
Your dishwasher must be correctly installed and connected. Please read the
section on "Installation" to make sure you know all about this.
●
Before using your dishwasher for the first time, do not forget that the nominal
voltage and current type indicated on the rating plate of your machine must be
the same as the nominal voltage and current type at the installation site. The
necessary electrical fusing is also given on the rating plate.
Child safety
4
●
Packaging parts (e.g. foils, styrene foam) may be dangerous for children, who
could even be suffocated! You should therefore keep all packaging well away
from children.
●
Children may not recognise the dangers of improper use of electrical appliances.
You should therefore ensure proper supervision during operation and not allow
your children to play with your dishwasher.
●
Detergents may have a caustic effect on eyes, mouth and throat and may even
cause suffocation! Keep all detergents in a safe place out of children’s reach.
●
The water in your dishwasher should not be used for drinking. Detergent residues
may still be present in your machine. Make sure you do not splash these caustic
residues onto your skin or suffocate yourself! Keep children well away from your
dishwasher when its door is open.

Your dishwasher in day-to-day use
●
Never operate your dishwasher if the electrical supply lead, supply or drainhose,
control panel, worktop or plinth are damaged.
●
If there is a fault, first turn the water tap off. Then switch off your machine and
pull the plug out of the socket. If there is a fixed connection, switch off or
unscrew the fuse(s).
●
Never pull the plug out of the socket by the cable - always hold the plug.
●
Dishwasher repairs should only be performed by trained personnel.
Improper repairs may seriously endanger the user. If your dishwasher needs to be
repaired, you should contact our service centre or your retailer.
●
Never place any solvents in your dishwasher or you may cause an explosion!
●
Do not rest or sit on the open door or the machine could tilt.
●
Before using special dishwasher salt, detergent or rinse-aid, make sure that the
manufacturer of these products expressly specifies their use in domestic
dishwashers.
●
Always turn off the water tap when your dishwasher is left unattended for any
length of time, e.g. when you are away on holiday.
●
Only transport the dishwasher in an upright position. Tipping it upside down
during transport could cause salty water to leak into the internal compartment
and lead to the formation of rust.

Disposing of packaging and old machine
Disposing of the packaging
Our dishwashers require effective protective packaging in transit, though we always
confine ourselves to what is absolutely necessary.
Warning! Packaging parts (e.g. foils, styrene foam) may be dangerous
for children, who could even be suffocated! You should therefore
keep all packaging well away from children.
All packaging materials used are environmentally compatible and reusable.
The cardboard parts are produced from recycled paper, and the wood is untreated.
The plastics are marked as follows:
>PE<
for polyethylene, e.g. packaging foils.
>PS<
for polystyrene, e.g. padding (essentially CFC-Free).
>POM<
for polyoxymethylene, e.g. plastic clamps.
Give the packaging for reuse to your local recycling centre. Your municipal or local
authority will give you its address.
Disposing of your old machine
When your machine finally reaches the end of its life and you withdraw it from
service, you should render it unserviceable before having it disposed of.
Warning! Children at play could lock themselves in your machine
(and suffocate) or otherwise endanger their lives. Therefore pull out
the main plug and detach and discard the electrical supply lead.
Disable the door lock so that the door no longer closes.
Marking of plastic parts for graded recycling: all plastic parts in your machine are
marked with internationally standardised abbreviations (e.g. <PS> for polystyrene).
When your machine is disposed of, this enables plastic waste to be sorted into
individual types for environmentally conscious recycling.
Take your decommissioned machine to your local recycling centre or dealer, who will
take it back from you for a small handling charge.

Economical and ecological dishwashing
●
Only connect the dishwasher to the hot water supply if your hot water is not
electrically heated.
●
Ensure that the water softener is correctly adjusted.
●
Do not pre-rinse under running water.
●
Select the wash programme to suit the nature and degree of the soiling on the
dishes.
●
Do not use more detergent, special salt or rinse aid than is recommended in these
operating instructions and by the manufacturer of the respective product.

Before using your dishwasher for the first time
1. Ensure that the electrical and water connections comply with the installation
instructions.
2. Remove all packaging from inside the appliance.
3. Set the water softener.
4. Pour 1 litre of water inside the salt container and then fill with salt.
5. Fill the rinse-aid dispenser.
Setting the water hardness range
The dishwasher is equipped with a water softener designed to remove minerals and
salts from the water supply, which would have a detrimental or adverse effect on the
operation of the appliance.
The higher the content of these salts, the harder your water is.
Water hardness is measured in equivalent scales, German, French and PPM degrees.
The softener should be adjusted according to the hardness of the water in your area.
To ensure optimum regeneration of the water softener:
- the water softener must be adjusted to the local water hardness;
- the dishwasher salt container must always be filled with special salt.
Your local Water Authority can advise you on the hardness of the water in your area.
The dishwasher is factory set at level 3.
If this level is not suitable for your area the softener should be adjusted.

If your water is level 1 it is already soft and therefore there is no need to use salt.
With the setting of the water softener at level 1 the salt indicator light on the
control panel will always remain off.
Use salt from level 2 upwards.

From level 2 upwards, if salt refilling is necessary, the salt indicator light will
illuminate only in setting mode and at the end of the washing programme.
During the run of the programme it will remain off.

To select a different level be sure that the dishwasher is
off and then proceed as follows:
1. Press INTENSIV 70° and NORMAL 65° programme push buttons simultaneously.
2. While keeping the programme push buttons INTENSIV 70° and NORMAL 65°
pressed, switch on the dishwasher by pressing the On/Off push button.
The On/Off indicator light comes on. At the same time, the indicator lights of the
INTENSIV 70° and NORMAL 65° programme push buttons start flashing.

SO501
The current level is indicated by the number of flashes made by the INTENSIV 70°
indicator light, that alternates 5 seconds off with a number of flashes, this for
about 60 seconds.
Example:
1 flash
= level 1
2 flashes = level 2
3 flashes = level 3
4 flashes = level 4
5 flashes = level 5
4. To change the level, press the INTENSIV 70° programme push button.
Each time the push button is pressed the level changes.
Examples:
if the current level is 3, by pressing the INTENSIV 70° programme push button
once, level 4 is selected,
if the current level is 5, by pressing the INTENSIV 70° programme push button
once, level 1 is selected.

The INTENSIV 70° indicator light remains off for about 5 seconds after which it
starts flashing indicating the new level selected.
5. To memorise the new level, switch off the dishwasher by pressing the On/Off
push button.
Filling with special salt
Caution! The packaging of dishwasher salt and detergents are often very similar. The
accidental filling of the salt compartment with detergent would ruin the water
softener. Each time you add salt, make sure the carton you have in your hand really
is salt.
Only use salt specifically designed for use in dishwashers.
All other types of salt not specifically designed for use in a dishwasher,
especially table salt, will damage the water softener.
Only fill with salt just before starting one of the complete washing
programmes. This will prevent any grains of salt or salty water, which
may have been spilled, remaining on the bottom of the machine for
any period of time, which may cause corrosion.
To fill:
1. To fill with salt, unscrew the cap of the
salt container.
2. Pour 1 litre of water inside the
container (this is necessary only
before filling with salt for the first
time).

3. Using the funnel provided, pour in the
salt until the container is full.
Do not worry if water overflows from
the unit when filling with salt, this is
quite normal.
4. Replace the cap making sure that
there is no trace of salt on the screw
thread or on the gasket.
5. Screw on the cap tightly.

When this has been done, all that is required is to periodically top up the container
with salt. You are reminded of this by the salt container indicator light on the
control panel which comes on when the salt has run out.
The salt indicator light on the control panel can remain illuminated for 2-6
hours after the salt has been replenished, assuming the dishwasher remains
switched on. If you are using salts that take longer to dissolve then this can
take longer. The function of the machine is not affected.
Rinse aid
Rinse aid is automatically added during the last rinse, ensuring thorough rinsing, and
spot and streak free drying. The dispenser, which is positioned inside the door, holds
about 110 ml of rinse aid, which is sufficient for 16 - 40 dishwashing programmes,
depending upon the dosage setting.
Filling with rinse aid
1. Open the container by turning the lid (A)
anticlockwise.
2. Add the rinse aid until the container is
completely full.
The indicator (B) will be completely dark.
3. Top up the rinse aid when the rinse aid
indicator light on the control panel illuminates.
BR01
If rinse aid refilling is necessary, the rinse aid
indicator light will illuminate only in setting
mode and at the end of the washing
programme. During the run of the programme it
will remain off.
Ensure that the lid is closed after every refill.
BR03
Do not put liquid detergent in the rinse aid
compartment. Clean up any rinse aid spilt during
filling with an absorbent cloth to avoid excess foaming during the next wash.
It is possible to deactivate the rinse aid indicator light (see following
instructions).
By default the rinse aid indicator light is active

Loading cutlery and dishes
Sponges, household cloths and any object that can absorb water may not be
washed in the dishwasher.
For washing in the dishwasher the following cutlery/dishes
are not suitable:
●
Cutlery with wooden, horn, china or
mother of pearl handles.
●
Plastic items that are not heat resistant.
●
Older cutlery with cement that is not
temperature resistant.
●
Bonded cutlery items or dishes.
●
Pewter or copper items.
●
Lead crystal glass.
●
Steel items subject to rusting.
●
Wooden platters.
●
Items made from synthetic fibres.
are of limited suitability:
●
Only wash stoneware in the dishwasher
if it is specifically marked as being
dishwasher-safe by the manufacturer.
●
Glazed patterns may fade if machine
washed frequently.
●
Silver and aluminium parts have a
tendency to discolour during washing.
Left-overs, e.g. egg white, egg yolk and
mustard often cause discolouring and
staining on silver. Therefore always
clean left-overs from silver immediately,
if it is not to be washed straight after
use.
●
Some types of glass can become dull
after a large number of washes.
Attention!
When buying new dishes, ensure that they are dishwasher proof.
Before placing dishes in the machine, remove any scraps of food, to avoid clogging
the filters and consequently reducing the performance.
Do not load very small items which can fall through the baskets.
Open the door and slide out the baskets.

Cutlery basket
Long bladed knives stored in an upright position are a potential
hazard.
Long and/or sharp items of cutlery such as carving knives must be
positioned horizontally in the upper basket.
Take care when loading or unloading sharp items such as knives.
Cutlery should be placed in the removable cutlery basket with the handles facing
downwards. If the handles protrude from the bottom of the basket, obstructing the
lower spray arm, load the cutlery with the handles facing downwards.
Mix spoons with other cutlery to prevent the from sticking together.
Silver cutlery tends to go black if mixed with steel cutlery. Place it in the cutlery
basket separate from the others.
To unload your dishwasher more easily, you can take the cutlery basket out of the
lower basket and unfold it. This makes it easier to remove small pieces of cutlery.
Important note! To prevent the full
cutlery basket from inadvertently
unfolding when being taken out, place
your hand right round the two-piece
handle and hold it firmly.
1. Place the cutlery basket on a firm
support (table, worktop) and unfold
both handle parts.
2. After unfolding, fold back both
handle parts.

The upper basket
The upper basket is designed for plates (dessert plates, saucers, dinner plates up to 24
cm in diameter), salad bowls, cups and glasses.
Glasses with long stems can be placed upsidedown in the cup-racks
The cup-rack on the left folds upwards to increase
your loading flexibility.
Arrange items on and underneath the fold-down
cup racks so that water can reach all surfaces.
Light items (plastic bowls etc.) must be loaded in
the upper basket and arranged so they do not
US69
move.
Before closing the door, ensure that the spray arms can rotate freely.
Adjusting the height of the upper basket
If washing very large plates (over 27 cm and up to 31 cm in diameter) you can load
them in the lower basket after moving the upper basket to the higher position.
To move to the higher position proceed as
follows:
1. Move the front runner stops (A) of the upper
basket outward and slide the basket out.
2. Refit the basket in the higher position and
replace the stops (A) in their original position.
RC01
When the top basket is in the higher position it will only take plates up to 20
cm in diameter and you will not be able to use the cup racks.
After loading your machine always close the door, as an open door can
be a hazard.

4. If the programme has a prewash add a little
amount of detergent over the lid of the
dispenser according to the recommended
quantity given in the "Washing programmes"
chart.

If using detergent in tablets proceed as follows:
1. For all programmes; place 1 tablet inside the detergent dispenser.
2. Always close the lid.
3. For all programmes with prewash; place a portion of a further tablet on the lid of
the detergent dispenser.
ONLY in case of use of detergent in tablets with "Quick 50°" programme, it is
advisable to put the tablet directly in the dishwasher and not in the dispenser or in
special tablet containers.
At the end of any washing programme the lid is always open, ready for the next
wash.

Using no more than correct amount of detergent also contributes to
reducing pollution.
Remember that insufficient quantities of detergent will produce poor
washing results whereas an excessive amount of detergent does not
improve washing results and is also wasteful.
Compact detergents with enzymes
In these compact powders the environmentally unfriendly components have been
replaced by natural enzymes and other more biodegradable substances.
The enzymes deploy their full dirt dissolving power at a temperature as low as 50°C.
By choosing the "50°C" programmes you can therefore achieve the same cleaning
results that would otherwise be achievable only with 65°C programmes and
conventional detergents.

Caution!
In general it is not advisable to open the door while the machine is
working; if the door is opened however, a safety device ensures that the
machine stops.
Caution!
Opening the door could let very hot steam escape: you risk being
scalded! Open the door with great care.
Do not open the door during the hot phase: this may cause hot water
escape.

Maintenance and cleaning
Internal and external cleaning
Do not under any circumstances use furniture care products or aggressive
cleaners.
If necessary, clean the controls only with a soft cloth and pure warm water.
The spray arms do not need cleaning.
Occasionally check the internal containers, door seal and water inlet for soiling,
clean if necessary.
We recommend every 3 months to run a 65°C wash programme without dishes using
detergent.
Cleaning the filters
The filters in the base of the washing compartment are to large extent self-cleaning.
Nevertheless the filters should be checked and cleaned from time to time. Dirty
filters will degrade the washing result.
1. Open the door, remove the lower
basket.
2. The dishwasher filter system comprises
a coarse/fine filter, microfilter and a
flat filter.
Unlock the filter system using a handle
on the microfilter, and remove.
MA15
3. Turn the handle about 1/4 a turn
anticlockwise and remove.
4. Take hold of the coarse/fine filter (1/2)
by the handle with the hole and
remove from the microfilter (3).
5. Clean all filters thoroughly under
running water.

6. Remove the flat filter (4) from the
base of the washing compartment and
clean both faces thoroughly.
7. Put the flat filter back in the base of
the washing compartment.
8. Place the coarse/fine filter in the
microfilter and press together.

9. Put the filter combination in place and
lock by turning the handle clockwise
to the stop.
During this process ensure that the flat
filter does not protrude above the base
of the washing compartment.
The dishwasher must not be used without filters.
Incorrect repositioning and fitting of the filters will produce poor
washing results.

Connection instructions
Any electrical work required to install this appliance should be carried out by a
qualified electrician or competent person.
Any plumbing work required to install this appliance should be carried out by a
qualified plumber or competent person.
Remove all packaging before positioning the machine.
If possible, position the machine next to a water tap and a drain.
Water supply connections
This dishwasher may be fed with either hot (max. 50°) or cold water.
Nevertheless we advise you a cold water supply.
A hot water supply is not always efficient with very soiled crockery as it shortens the
washing programmes a lot.
The water pressure must be within the limits given in the technical specifications.
Your local Water Authority will advise you on the average mains pressure in your
area.
The dishwasher features fill and drain hoses which can be turned either to the left or
to the right to suit the installation. The locknut must be correctly fitted to avoid
water leaks.
Avoid bends or kinks in the hose which could prevent or slow down the water supply.
If the machine is connected to new pipes or pipes which have not been used for a
long time, you should run the water for a few minutes before connecting the inlet
hose. This will prevent deposits of sand or rust clogging the inlet hose filter.
Do not use, for connection, old hoses which have been used in another
appliance.
Your dishwasher has been built in accordance with the valid regulations governing
water-consuming appliances and is equipped with safety devices which prevent used
water from flowing back into the drinking water mains.

be no smaller than the diameter of the hose provided.
Likewise the internal diameter of the couplings used for connection to the waste
outlet must be no smaller than the diameter of the drain hose.
Arrange the extension hose horizontally along the floor and allow it to rise only
where it is to be connected to the drain.

Protection against flooding
The machine is fitted with a device in the bottom of the machine to protect against
flooding.
The device will operate if there are any water leaks in the machine.
In case of malfunction, the "washing" and "drying" phase indicator lights start
flashing (see "What to do, if.....").
In this case turn off the water tap and call the Service Centre.
Electrical connection
Before plugging the appliance into the wall socket, make sure that:
1. The mains voltage corresponds to the voltage given in the technical specifications.
2. The meter, fuses, mains power supply and wall socket can all take the maximum
load required.
Make sure that the socket and plug are compatible without having to use any type
of adaptor. If necessary, have the domestic wiring system socket replaced.
Safety standards require the appliance to be earthed.
The Manufacturer accepts no liability for failure to observe the above
safety precautions.
